So Angelina Jolie is going to play the wife of Daniel Pearl in the upcoming film A Mighty Heart.  Apparently she and the film’s director, Britain’s Michael Winterbottom, did not get along too well during the making of the film. Not to worry – witty little Jolie devised a clever strategy: 


“Michael and I would have disagreements over where he could follow me. We came up with a system. If I closed the door, he couldn’t follow. If I left it open, he could,” she said. “I just needed to know that if things got too heavy, there’d be a place for me to cry by myself.”

Clearly Jolie is much better suited for life as an intellectual — never mind this celebrity rubbish. A true problem-solver. I am embarrassed for her. And I’m irritated because I am actually a fan of Jolie, and I hate to feel stupid when I learn things like this about people I like for one reason or another.
